Great Lakes Pilotage: 2011 Annual Review and Adjustment
Document Number: 2011-2456
Type: Rule
Date: 2011-02-04
Agency: Coast Guard, Department of Homeland Security
The Coast Guard is increasing the rates for pilotage service on the Great Lakes to generate sufficient revenue to cover allowable expenses, target pilot compensation, and return on investment. This increase reflects a projected August 1, 2011, increase in benchmark contractual wages and benefits and an adjustment for deflation. This rule promotes the Coast Guard's strategic goal of maritime safety.
